USB buying guide.

When I used to work at Staples, once in a while I would get a customer that would express such great frustration that every store he’d been to didn’t seem to carry the cable he needed – USB-A to USB-A. I would simply say “for the average user, if you’re looking for a cable like that, you’re doing something wrong.” When I asked, they are usually up to something like attempting to connect their laptop to the USB Host on their Router. This guide would be great to have posted in the tech sections of places like Best Buy or Staples, so many confused customers and some that can’t even see (visually) the difference between Micro and Mini. Of course with that said, there are info boards posted in stores already but no one ever looks at them and always asks for help anyway.
